 Nick Todd is the younger brother of Pat Boone and signed with Dot in 1957. The President of Dot Records didn’t want him to use the same name as his brother, so he made up ‘Todd’, which is basically ‘Dot’ spelled backwards. He jumped straight on the Dot Records cover bandwagon, this time copying Ted Newman’s US No.45 single, ‘Plaything’.
In February 1958 he hit the US charts at No.21 with ‘At The Hop’ (see HLD8537), the Danny & the Juniors song that had hit No.1 in December, 1957.
A quick follow-up, ‘Teenage Cutie’ / ‘Ever Since I Met Lucy’ (actually released in the US in January, 1958) was unsuccessful. This interesting single, not issued by London, had an Eddie Cochran song on the top side with a cover of Mark Stone’s ‘Lucy’ on the flip. (see HLR 8543). He similarly had no luck with his other 1958 singles, ‘Too Much Rosita’ / ‘Forever And A Day’ and ‘Does Your Heart Beat For Me’ / ‘My Little Girl’. In 1959 Dot released his sixth single, ‘Tiger’ / ‘Twice As Nice’, which was issued by London-American on HLD 8992.
Nick Todd’s final Dot single came in July 1960, ‘Your Love’s Got A Grip On Me’ / ‘Each Moment (Spent With You)’, after which he faded into obscurity.
